So Nick announces that he’s going to whisk me away to a much-needed overnight stay at The W (funded by a gift certificate that’s been burning a hole in his wallet for quite some time) no kids, no friends. Just us. This, of course, makes me giddy. There will be a nice dinner. And dessert. And drinks. Perhaps an in-room movie. Great hotel sex (don’t front you know what I’m talking about!). And sleep. Lots of sleep.

He barely gets the announcement past his lips before I’m running to the closet, trying to find something to wear to our hot night out. Alas, practically every last one of my cutest outfits are in the “needs to go to the dry cleaners” hamper, and only one dress the one I wore to our last hot date night is striking the right notes.

Me: Aw man, I want to wear something nice, but the only thing I have is this blue dress.

Nick: I like that blue dress.

Me: But I wore this one out with you already.

Nick: I don’t care it’s a hot dress. Especially if it means you’re not going to buy another dress.

Damn men.

  1. Mmpphh! Have FUN! Sounds to me like the dress is a minor detail in his scheme for the evening.

  2. lol! Yeah, mine would say I don’t know what the big deal is, your a$$ won’t have it on for long anyway! Damn men for real! Hope you have a great time and yes, I know what you’re talking about with the hotel sex thing 😛

  3. Even better than the hot hotel sex was the chance to spend quality (childless) time with my lovely wife, talking and laughing and enjoying each other’s company with all the joy and privacy we could ever want!

  4. um, you could throw on a dish towel for all Nick cares! You are a hot mama and that dress won’t be on long. My fav cheat spot, TJMAXX and the sale rack at Macy. HAve fun!!

  5. Oooh that sounds like fun! I love staying in hotels! *wink, wink*

  6. Ooooo, sounds like a good quick get away. I think we are due for one. Thanks for the idea.

    Men don’t care how often a dress is worn but who’s wearing it! I’m sure it was great just having that time alone and of course, the hotel sex!

    How about some nice lingerie and a trenchcoat? I’m sure you wouldn’t be needing the dress for too long anyway 😉

    @ Rose-Anne Clermont: Oooh… Robin Givens a la Boomerang style… nice! Let me write THAT down!!!

    @Lucky Paperie: LOVE the Macy’s sales… they practically give that stuff away!

    Poised and practical, go ‘head Nick! Have a wonderful time in your blue dress!

  12. He sounds like my husband. Besides, they normally don't want the dress to stay on too long anyway – ahem, hot hotel sex!

    Winks & Smiles,

  13. Nick is right. It is even sexier when your wife does not have to buy a new dress! 🙂
